Top Nigerian singer, Simi, yesterday in an Instagram live session, blasted yahoo boys for making the world to laugh at us.
She made this known after a fan in a live video chat, asked her to stop blasting Yahoo boys as they are the ones that buy her music most.
The singer stated that what is bad is bad, also noting that some of those involved in internet fraud have gone a step further by doing rituals.
According to her, yahoo boys should not buy her music with their ill-gotten wealth.
The singer also stated that every week Nigerians are arrested in different countries across the world for fraud and this is indirectly stopping the progress of innocent Nigerians.
She added that some Nigerians who are looking for the smallest opportunity to make ends meet are sometimes told by international companies that they can’t work with Nigerians because of the fraud perpetrated by yahoo boys.
Nigerian contemporary rapper MI Abaga has rendered his support to Simi in her fight against Yahoo boys.
While taking side with her, MI also re-echoed the adverse effects of the activities of Yahoo boys in the society and how it is hurting more people than the few ones it is helping.
In the spirit of uplifting our Queens.. @symplysimi I applaud your courage and your fortitude for speaking out on what you believe!!!
The truth is that the scourge of internet fraud is hurting us more than it is helping us.. and please don’t misunderstand.. this country is so hard that I judge no man because I am imperfect.
But we must not attack those that remind us of what we should be.. that energy is for us to vote.. us to speak out against our elected officials.. and for us to do a better job at lifting all young Nigerians so that they never have to turn away from righteousness to provide food to eat.
We may be forced to eat with dirty hands.. but it doesn’t mean we should piss in clean water
